Testimonials

I reached out to Sonja to commission a portrait of my mother. I had initially asked her to bring my mother’s photograph to life and that’s what she did! Her choice of colors and details did exactly that. The painting made my dad cry the second I gave it to him. He very, very seldom cries and it was instant. Everyone loved it and were amazed by her work. Thanks again for creating a new memory while we loved some old memories. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, and would definitely recommend her to others. - Todd 
Sonja is the only one I would trust to capture my fur babies for posterity. This is the second pet portrait I have commissioned. She and I had a few conversations beforehand. She communicated a proposed timeline and the final cost including the deposit. A preliminary sketch was also emailed to me so I could preview the work while in progress. She actually had the pencil sketch completed ahead of schedule and I couldn't be happier. I have already made plans for another sketch. She is so talented and a pleasure to work with! - Rebekah

Sonja completed a custom painting of my grandmothers childhood home. She was absolutely amazing to work, sending drafts, video explanations and photos of the painting as she went. Sonja is an incredible artist and this piece of art will hold a very, very special place in our home. I can’t thank her enough! - Hannah

I commissioned a custom drawing of my Church from Sonja as a goodbye present to one of our pastors. I was thoroughly pleased with the quality of the drawing, it was finished and delivered in a timely fashion, and I received excellent customer service from beginning to end. If you want a wonderful piece of art, look no further. - Jacob


We commissioned Sonja to paint two of our previous homes and couldn’t be happier. She captured them perfectly and even made the landscaping pop better than the pictures we sent her. She’s a true talent, friendly, responsive and such a professional! - Bradley

I asked for a painting for my mom's 50th birthday- it turned out way better than I could imagine! It was two beautiful otters. (I want my own for our house!) She also has done work in the past that has filled my son's nursery. I am so in love with Sonjas work and hope to get more pieces from her in the upcoming years. 💕 - Heaven

I commissioned Sonja to do a portrait of my boss's beautiful pit bull. He is a great boss and loves his dog so much I thought it would be a great gift. Sonja was so easy to work with and very accommodating to time constraints. Her drawing was gorgeous . She caught the true beauty and essence of Cassie. I am going to have Sonja do more renderings for me. She is fabulous!!!!! - Eileen


Sonja took the photographs I supplied of my son's circa late 1700's home in Old Town Alexandria, Va and made it come alive. This masterpiece is a present for my son who is getting married in the fall of this year. It will be passed down through many generations of our family. I chose Sonja after seeing some of her previous creations, and talking with her and knew I'd be happy with the final product of her craft. She exceeded my fondest expectations. I would be pleased to discuss my experience should a future client with to talk with me. - Bob Engstrom

Sonja did a portrait of my sister's dog Daisy, who recently passed. It brought my sister to tears. The likeness was incredible!
